It’s hard to know where folks stand re: Dodos. If you recall, the SF band’s third album Time to Die leaked months in advance largely because people were still high on the fumes of the much praised Visiter. After that it felt like excitement chilled a bit… which, if you liked the band’s work previously, is strange. As you’ve heard on “Fables” and the songs the guys took along with them to The Interface, the formula’s still intact. For instance, “Longform” might as well remind you of “Ashley” or “Fools” in its blend of gentle harmonies and insistent percussion. Hop in the car, take your best guy/girl for a ride in the sun-dappled countryside, ponder.
